Blogging is indeed a wonderful thing to do, when ever guys like me blogs they feel like they have achieved something. I see many people who starts blogging by getting inspired by others well there is nothing wrong in that, even i got inspired by the big names in blogging.
I use to read about the journey of there life, i even do that now. Reading about someone who achieved great height by starting from scratch, this sure does inspire lot of people. We look at the place where they are now but we overlook on the difficulties they faced and overcame.
I have seen many bloggers starting a blog by getting inspired or thinking that this is easy money. Well blogging sure does pays off and if your blog is really liked by lot of guys then you can earn great amount of money too, lets accept it who doesn’t want to live the dot com lifestyle.
There are lots of benefits of blogging like you can choose your own working hours, you can work from anywhere you want, you can earn lot more that you can in your job.
There are lot of thing that can attract any one in the world of blogging, thats why there are 152 million blogs on the internet. In every half second a blog is created that means 172k blogs are created every day. This is a huge number to get anyone scared, Before you get scared i must tell you that this huge number of blogs surface the web every day every minute but only a few survive with time.
This is not that easy to do thing that anyone can handle, blogging looks very easy from outside but the fact is its really tough and those who are doing it knows how much we have to put in to make it work.
If you want to get the perfect answer to the question that Do you have a blogger in you then you must read the points i’ve written below and be honest to yourself, this is really going to help you.
Why do you want to blog?
This is the main question that you should ask before you start your career as a blogger. Why you want to get into the line of blogging, every one has a different answer to this question. I’ve seen many people who finds satisfaction in making a blog to express their views, if you are one of those i respect your decision.
There are others who like do it for other to read their blog and write about only those things. I‘ve also seen guys who are doing blogging just for money, well no one hates some sweet cash flowing your way. There are a few who do it just to get popular, they want to be known that’s it.
What ever be the reason for which you want to start blogging, but before you start you should be sure about for what reason you want to blog for. You should always remember the reason why you started blogging this will help you keep your mind focused.
Do you want to blog for money?
Yes this is one of the primary reasons why any one likes to start their journey in blogging. This is not bad if you want to blog for money, i don’t mind making some money for the time I’m putting in, and i know you won’t either. Money you can make by blogging certainly makes any one jump in to the blogging, there are guys out there who make making a fortune by their blogging career.
If you are one of those who wants those who wants to be a blogger because you want to live that dot-com lifestyle, make lot of money. Then i must warn you before hand that it’s not that easy, if it would have been that easy then there would be million of millionaires around the world.
In blogging money does come but its a slow process, it’ll take time to build content, audience, Brand etc. You can take a rough estimate as you won’t be making any money from say 6 months to a year. This is the time where most of the blogger gets frustrated and leaves blogging for life.
How much time can you spend on your blog?
A blog is a hungry beast which should be feed with new content on regular basis. Time is an important factor affecting you blogging life, blogging is all about consistency, I’m not saying that you should divert all your time to your blog, the thing is that you should be consistent. If you are making say 2 or 3 posts a week then you should be consistent on publishing minimum 2 posts per week.
This will your audience know that you update your blog twice or thrice a week and they will come for that. If you are not able to give your blog enough time than blogging is not the right thing for you.
Are you a good writer?
Every one has their own way of expressing things, in blogging you should have the ability to express your thoughts in written words. There are a lot of people out there who have a lot of thing running in their mind, they even want to share those thoughts with others but when they start wring whey don’t know where to start.
If you are not a good writer then you should learn how to write content that people likes to read before you start a blog. You can do this in very easy way, write an article about any subject you like then let some people read the article, and take their reviews as to in the scale of 1-10 where they rank your post. If it’s not good enough then you should ask them what they think is lacking in the article and start working on that.
After you learn how to write good in-depth content that everyone loves to read, then you can start a blog that can lead to success.
Are you choosing right Niche?
This is not that important for get the answer that do you have a blogger in you, but this sure is important for you blog to be successful. Every one who starts a blog wants it to be successful, for that choosing a correct niche is very important.
As I said earlier if you like to blog for your own satisfaction then there is nothing wrong in it, you can blog about any thing you want, it’s totally up to you and we respect it.
If you want others to read your articles the you should choose a topic that people like. Say if you are blogging about Eskimos or an insect on amazon then you will be getting visitors who are interested in that topic which will be very less.
On the other hand if you like to make a post say on a freshly launched mobile phone or weight loss which is a very highly searched topic then you will get more people to read your post.
So topic is very important for those who want to make a successful blog.
If you have answer these question honestly then you must be able to tell that do you have a blogger in you. If the answer is yes then i wish you best of luck for a successful blogging journey.
